Pure Purple Pleasure

I made one of my best ever breakfasts this morning with just 3 ingredients.

3 things in a blender Cashew nuts, frozen blueberries and a fresh banana.purple breakfast 2 I added no liquid so it remained thick.  Very thick, with small nuggets of cashews, which I had soaked the previous night.  By the time I got to work it was still very cold but not frozen at all.  I LOVED it!purple breakfast 1 I had it with a chopped up sweet and juicy orange.  Oooh yeah, that was taste heaven.oranges on purple I managed to make lunch again too.  Half a large red pepper, a large red tomato, 1 carrot and some more hemp seed humous.veggies and humous in pot Topped with loads of lamb’s lettuce.topped with lamb's lettuce Before eating lunch I went for a wander round the market and Turnip was open and they had trays of Alphonso mangoes which I adore.  At 4 for £5 I bought 4 🙂box of alphonso mango and cherries Turnip, Borough Market I also went to the Turkish cafe, TAS, and bought some of their falafel and humous, both of which are the very best I have ever had.  salad and humous The falafel is really crunchy and the humous is unbelievably smooth.falafel and humous When I got home the jar of broccoli seeds I was sprouting had gone mouldy which is a shame as they were about ready to eat.  I will have to try again.broccoli seeds mouldy I was still quite full up from lunch as that was a large serving of humous.  So I had a very light supper starring the lovely mango.Alphonso mango again Everything about these is wonderful.  The creamy flesh, the stunning colour, the irresistibly sweet smell and the heavenly taste.Alphonso mango 15-5-13 I ate them with some pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, raisins and cool creamy natural yogurt.mango, yog and nuts I could eat that lot again, it was wonderful.mango, yogurt and nuts

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
